Keene resident and white nationalist Christopher Cantwell has been granted bail in Virginia.

Cantwell has been in the Charlottesville area since the Unite the Right rally in August that turned violent. He was featured in a viral documentary about the unrest, and has been held in a local jail on charges relating to his use of teargas in the crowds.

A judge set a $25,000 bond Monday for Cantwell's release. But, according to the NBC affiliate in Charlottesville, he's forbidden from leaving the state of Virginia and from possessing guns. He'll also be subject to electronic monitoring.

His trial is set for February 12.
